Happy Tank launching ‘Turbo Kid’ prequel comic series for September 2021

In this prequel mini-series, follow Apple, one of the fan favorite characters of Turbo Kid, in an action packed prequel!

This September, a prequel to 2015’s retro comedy film Turbo Kid is on the way from the original film director and storyboard artist Jeik Dion. The series is set to expand on the film lore and will be available in comic book shops this September.

“Working with RKSS on the Turbo Kid franchise brought me back when I was 8 years old, waking up before my parents, on a Saturday morning, getting ready to watch cartoons for hours. It’s exactly like that, but with way more blood,” Dion said in a statement sent to AIPT.

So what’s it about?

In this prequel mini-series, follow Apple, one of the fan favorite characters of Turbo Kid, in an action packed prequel! Are you ready to go deeper into the universe of this already cult movie? Face the Robots War and the path that led Apple on the Kid’s route!

Happy Tank publisher Kevin Roditeli added, “I always looked up to Turbo Kid as an inspiration. It’s the greatest indie film ever made here (in Quebec, Canada). Without being patriotic, it’s exciting and special to have the chance to contribute to this franchise. If you’re a music label from Toronto and Drake asks you to sign his album you say ‘HELL YES!’ and be proud. That’s exactly how I feel right now. RKSS and Jeik Dion are talented beasts.”
